2001 740IL How to uninstall rear speakers

Hello everyone,

Does anyone have any instructions or feedback on how to uninstall rear speaker in a 2001 740IL? I believe i blew one of the rear speakers and my car makes this humming sound from the rear speakers. Makes noise no matter if car stereo is on or off. Interesting theory, i assume when you power off the deck the blown speaker would stop making the humming sound, but it doesnt.

I think i'm going to disable the speaker wire, until i can look at getting new speakers. Any thoughts or instructions on how to access the rear speaker would be great.

Thanks
Jay

constant humming from the rear deck could be caused by a amp that is going bad... the rear speakers to get to them the back seat,C-Pillers,and rear deck need to come out....

Thanks for your response.

Unfortunetly, i do not have an amp installed. Factory system still installed. I did in fact pull of the two speaker grills in the rear and noticed that only one of the speakers were humming; but on both sides.(left and right rear speakers) Total of 4 speakers in the rear, 2 on the left and 2 on the right.

There will be an amp somewhere in the car, if you have a cd changer it will be next to that in the boot/trunk.
